Desperately Need Help

Postby rshakle » Sun Jul 24, 2011 4:09 pm

I desperately need help deciding whether to transfer to UIUC or WUSTL. I am currently t25% at my Chicago T2. I know I want to transfer, not sure which school.
My primary market that I will be seeking is Chicago, but might want to move to West Coast and would like to have options out there as well. I know I want to work in a law firm, not necessarily big law (though I will obviously try for it.)

I'm trying arrive at a decision without considering COA (as I am fortunate enough to have someone else financing)
Please help. I'm waffling on this decision every 2 hours!

Thanks in advance

I don't thin top 25% is high enough to transfer anywhere. At least not a significant gain- I know top14 is definitely out.

I think your interest in Chicago pushes things toward UIUC. However, I suspect the real deciding factor should be this: Would you rather spend two years in Urbana, or St. Louis?

I've already been accepted at both. I need help deciding which to transfer to.

I would transfer to UIUC. You're not likely to get something out of OCI from either school, and being at UIUC will give you more alumni in Chicago to contact during your job search.
